OR Kenny, what gives? And other existential questions. No wrong answers.
He found out halfway through filming that they’d be paying him in turtle soup and/or toy monkeys instead of actual money.
…a film by Bell Labs.
He got a bowl of Zoloft from Dr. Z.
Johnny has already rejected the triune God.
…and smoking all those thin, black cigarettes means that he’ll be that height forever, too.
Whatever. Johnny doesn’t care.
Ooh. Maybe Johnny is French and filled with ennui.
…and his gang was never the same after they found that Pickled Eel Garden.
He also can’t read and hates jazz. Johnny’s outlook is bleak.
He was never right after that thing at the fair.
Would you be after being assaulted by Olsen and Johnson?
Yeah after the incident with the speedboat and the areo-plane helio-copter he was never quite the same…

He learned almost too late that man is a feeling creature and because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned too late for himself that men have to find their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can’t be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And when men seek such perfection, they find only death…fire…loss…disillusionment…the end of everything that’s gone forward. Men have always sought an end to the toil and misery, but it can’t be given, it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself.
Or, maybe not.
He’s just twisted.
